The MLB has decided to host the 2021 All-star Game in Colorado at Coors Field, according to The Daily Wire.

The MLB gave into increasing pressure from leftists to boycott Georgia’s recently passed voting laws.

These new voting laws include requiring a driver’s license when voting by mail.

ESPN reported, “Coors Field in Denver has been chosen to host this year’s All-Star Game.”

“It will mark the second time the homer-friendly home of the Colorado Rockies will host the Midsummer Classic.”

“The American League beat the National League 13-8 at Coors in 1998.”

Reporters were quick to share that Colorado also has voter ID laws.

Reporters also noted that the league was moving to a less diverse area.

“Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box,” MLB Commissioner of Baseball Robert D. Manfred, Jr. said in a statement.

“Fair access to voting continues to have our game’s unwavering support.”

The Colorado Secretary of State’s website states:

All voters who vote at the polls must provide identification. If you are voting by mail for the first time, you may also need to provide a photocopy of your identification when you return your mail ballot.

Many were also quick to point out that both the city and state where the game is being moved to, Denver, Colorado, are both significantly less racially diverse than Atlanta, Georgia.

Here are some statistics that confirm these claims:

* Colorado is 86.9% white and 4.6% black.

* Georgia is 60.2% white and 32.6% black.

* Denver is 76.1% white and 9.2% black.

* Atlanta is 40.9% white and 51% black.

The county where the game was going to be held in Georgia stated that it was going to lose more than $100 million from the league deciding to pull out of the area.

More from The Daily Wire:

The county where the game was going to be held in Georgia stated that it was going to lose more than $100 million from the league deciding to pull out of the area. MLB’s decision to pull out of Atlanta came after Democrat President Joe Biden said during an interview last week that he would “strongly support” the decision to pull out of Atlanta.

Colorado is one of the few states that engaged in universal mail-in voting before 2020, a practice that critics call controversial because it sends ballots to all voters whether they request a ballot or not.

The forms of identification that Colorado accepts for voting includes:

A valid Colorado driver’s license or valid identification card issued by the Colorado Department of Revenue. (Note: documents issued to not lawfully present and temporarily lawfully present individuals under Part 5 of Article 2 of Title 42, C.R.S. are not acceptable forms of identification.)
